The Hall of Champions is dedicated to recognizing and celebrating outstanding local athletic achievement and providing sports programming for the community. The Hall was launched by the Breitbard Athletic Foundation, which was founded in 1946 by the legendary Bob Breitbard to recognize significant athletic achievement in San Diego. Through its awards and recognition programs andfocus on the community of San Diego and its betterment, the Hall is devoted to motivating and inspiring youth of all ages to reach their full potential. A key element of this endeavor is the Breitbard Hall of Fame, which celebrates, memorializes and enshrines San Diego's sports legends such as Bill Walton, Ted Williams, Tony Gwynn, Junior Seau, Tony Hawk, and other icons. The Breitbard Hall of Fame is located on the main concourse of the Western Metal Supply Co. Building in Petco Park and can be experienced during Padres home games or Petco Park Tours.
